White one in the Screwfix car park Dereham Norfolk about half an hour ago. I tried to clock what version but my glasses were still fogged up from wearing a f....stoopid mask in Aldi.

no chance. :D :driving:
Oh that sounds so so familiar :lol:

Married 30 years she’s the love of my life but Mrs H sucks the joy out of my Zed when she’s a passenger, “you’re going to kill us” “you’ll lose your licence” the list is endless :headbang:

Saw a tidy looking Black E89 parked up next to the green in Stow-on-the-Wold today, plate ending XYX. We'd had a picnic there earlier but didn't spot driver.
Also passed a couple E86s on way to Moreton but didn't catch their plates.

Black E89 leaving Tesco’s petrol station in Great Dunmow around 6am this morning.

I waved but the driver looked at me like I wasn’t sharp so guessing probably not a forum member :rofl:

Followed a white E89 from Toftwood to Watton yesterday (we were in the 7 so no point flashing or waving) with the top up :o come on its a sports car. Might have been the same one.

Steve mate, there's no shame in shopping in Aldi. You don't need to hide your face. :D

Oh and I note you didn't spot my E89 last Thursday night? Too far ahead was it :poke: :rofl:

I was just doing my own thing and caught up when I felt the need to, which, tbh, didn't take long. Maybe I will try sport mode next time. :driving:
